Columbus, OH asked in Civil Rights, Employment Discrimination and Employment Law for Ohio

Q: Can I file discrimination on management for not addressing an issue with a co-worker who is Black and they are as well

I have had issues for a couple of years with my co-worker and we have new people in and she has personally attacked me and my character and I took it to my supervisor saying I’ve had enough and want to be moved, but I also told her that I really don’t want to leave. I have 29 years in and can retire in 15 months, if I chose to. I was supposed to have a meeting with my CIO to discuss, but instead my meeting was to tell me that they can’t do anything for me to stay, so I will need to pursue other options and if I did stay with the upcoming reorganization I will be demoted. Which means I will lose a lot of money to stay in my office. Do I have any legal rights to pursue? Thank you Kim
